CEDD has collated and developed a range of resources to support health professionals who are working with people who have eating disorders.
In this section of our website, you will find our ‘Practitioner Database’, a resource to help consumers find practitioners with the qualifications, skills and experience to work people with eating disorders. If you would like to register your practice details on our Practitioner Database so that people with eating disorders and their family/carers/friends can search for and locate you, please register below in the section titled ‘Practitioner Database’.
This part of our website also contains many useful and informative documents and resources to help health professionals working with people with eating disorders provide the best care possible to these patients. Resources include assessment tools, clinical practice guidelines, clinical case studies, and articles.
Included among these resources are many of the resources that are available on the CEDD’s Online Program, which addresses the nature, identification, assessment and treatment of eating disorders (please CLICK here for more information on the program, or to login or register). You can easily find these resources within each section as they have been marked with the following: “(Online Learning resource)”.
If you have any papers or links to suggest for the library, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s NSW Eating Disorders Statewide Forum, with a record attendance of over 200 people attending the event at the Charles Perkins Centre, University of Sydney.
Hosted by the Centre for Eating and Dieting Disorders with Sydney Local Health District, this year’s Forum centered around the theme “Eating Disorders are Everybody’s Business”, reflecting the need for a whole team approach to the treatment of eating disorders.
*Presentation slides and videos of the workshop sessions COMING SOON.*
Basten and Associates, Clinical Psychologists is offering a series of 6 workshops for carers of older adolescents and adults with an eating disorder.
If you are caring for a child, relative or partner with an eating disorder who is 18 years or older, this programme is designed to help you support their recovery through understanding and skills. It is not designed for parents of younger adolescents or those engaged in Maudsley Family Therapy.
It runs on Thursday evenings for six consecutive weeks, starting 27th July.
CEDD’s Deputy Director Danielle Maloney and NSW Mental Health Minister Tanya Davies MP attended the official launch of the new “Navigating Your Way to Health” resources in the Hunter on Monday 8th May.
These two booklets answer the questions that come up when someone has an eating disorder, including what to do, where to get help and how to support a loved one on the road to recovery.
